Therefore, one of the most important benefits of Facebook advertising is that your customers use it daily.

3. Facebook Advertising is the cheapest form of advertising

Another major benefit of Facebook advertising is that it is one of the cheapest forms of advertising. You can literally spend $5 and reach 1,000 people. It does not make sense to spend more in radio ads, television commercials, billboards, and other traditional media to reach the same audience.

Looks good right? The unfortunate part is that it is not easy to increase sales through Facebook advertising. It takes time and experience. You could easily waste thousands and not see any return on your investment. Because of this, we strongly recommend investing in an expert team. It is much more cost-effective to hire a professional agency than to hire an employee.

There is no guessing with Facebook advertising. The results are measurable. And, the numbers will speak for itself.

12. Facebook advertising can engage your website visitors

Have you ever visited a website and saw their Facebook ad shortly after? This is an advertising tactic called re-marketing. Re-marketing allows you to advertise to recent website visitors. This means that if someone visits your website, and does not purchase or contact you, you can re-engage them with Facebook advertising. This is a huge benefit that can dramatically boost your conversions.

Using their audiences feature, you can import your customer emails into your Facebook advertising campaign.

Facebook advertising builds engagement with your target audience. Engagement consists of the likes, comments, and interactions on your advertisements. Engagement is important because it signifies a stronger connection with your target audience. As people engage with your brand, an indirect connection is being developed. The more engaged your audience is, the stronger your connection is with them. The more connected they are to your business, the more likely they will convert. Investing into social media management can also dramatically increase your engagement.

15. Facebook advertising increases word-of-mouth and referrals

The social aspect of Facebook advertising makes it better than any other form of advertising that exists. Facebook advertisements can go viral.

The ability to spread word-of-mouth and referrals will be a significant benefit your business can capitalise on by using Facebook advertising.

16. Facebook advertising can help you build your email list

Facebook advertising can fuel your email marketing efforts. You can utilise Facebook’s “lead ad” forms to capture email contacts through Facebook ads. You can also direct traffic to an external form on your website to build your email list.

17. Facebook advertising can increase your SEO rankings

Facebook advertising can help you expand into new markets. If you are bringing a new product or service to market, you can use Facebook advertising to increase its exposure. Facebook advertising will help you test the market, at your own pace.

19. Your competitors are using Facebook advertising

Your competitors are using Facebook advertising to grow their business. You are making it easier for them by not using Facebook advertising to reach your audience. If you are not using online advertising to grow your business, you will not have a business soon. If your customers spend most of their time on social media, you need to make sure you are using it to grow your business.

20. Facebook advertising can give you an edge on larger businesses

Facebook advertising can be the backdoor you use to crush the larger competition. You don’t have to worry about large competitors driving up the cost of advertising as you would with Google AdWords. It is just you and your audience. As long as your ads are relevant, your ads will likely perform efficiently with Facebook advertising.

21. Facebook advertising is mobile.

Mobile is the future of online. 50% of all Internet users are mobile. Over 84% of Facebook users access Facebook from a mobile device. In fact, Facebook is one of the largest mobile applications that exist today. If you are following the trends of advertising, Facebook advertising will not fail you. You are able to advertise to your audience on the devices they use every day.

According to the latest figures released this last quarter of 2019, it has been announced that Facebook has again achieved another milestone. This giant social media network has now over 2.7 billion monthly users.

And do you know what’s more interesting than these numbers? It’s the fact that half of these users log in with their mobile phones. Yes, that’s more than a billion potential audience and buyers for your business.

22. Facebook advertising is more effective than organic (organic Facebook is almost dead)

The days of organic Facebook marketing are over. There is no such thing as organic Facebook marketing. To be successful, you will have to use Facebook advertising. Even if you are building a community of followers, you will likely have to use Facebook advertising to grow your community. If you are posting content, you will likely use promoted posts to reach more people. Facebook advertising is a must if your business plans to adapt a social strategy.

23. Facebook advertising is budget-friendly (set your own budget)

Facebook advertising is budget-friendly. You are in control of your destiny. You can set a daily or lifetime budget. You can easily increase or decrease it at any time.

However, sometimes this can come back to haunt you. If you under spend, you may not get enough exposure. If you overspend on the wrong ad campaign, you can waste thousands of dollars.
